Jewelry Classes: Nuts and Bolts

Beginning classes are offered in bead weaving stitches, basic assembly, wire wrapping, and special jewelry classes. The classes are usually offered in a series. The student will learn in a comfortable atmosphere, and will advance without frustration. If you are part of a group of three or more and our class schedule does not fit yours, we will custom fit a class for you. Please talk to us. Classes require a minimum of three students. Students must be signed up at least one week before class or sooner as space is limited. We now accept 1/2 down for classes, balances to be paid at the beginning of class sessions. We ask that parents make provisions for childcare. All attendees of classes must be registered.

Please see below for list of classes, and call or stop in for time schedule.


Come in or call … we accept cash, check, and credit cards.
Refund on classes only with a 48 hour notice prior to class meeting.
